Shearer And Pardew Show Their Class

A lot of good things go on behind the scenes which never see the light of day, but there was some heart warming news over the weekend that Alan Shearer had sent a letter to the family of Liam Sweeney, and Newcastle manager Alan Pardew had sent messages of support to the family.

Alan Shearer – a class act

This is what Liam’s father, Barry Sweeney told the Sunday Sun yesterday:

‘When we opened it the letter said among other things “we come from the same sort of family and we support the same team. These words come from the heart”.

‘The letter was signed Alan Shearer.” “Alan Pardew has also sent some nice messages to our family and we’re humbled by all the support we’ve received.”

“I haven’t been able to thank everyone personally because I’ve spoken to so many people. But I want everyone to know how grateful we are.”

“When I go into our local Morrisons where Liam used to work I find myself hugging people who are in tears and not the other way around.”

“He was a really well-liked lad and a loyal Toon fan.”  ‘There was a letter addressed to the family that arrived on Friday,’

The killing of John and Liam when their Malaysian jet was shot down by pro-Russian revels with 298 souls on board, has galvanized the north-east.

And we are sure that Newcastle United will create some permanent monument or plaque at St. James’ Park that will serve as a remembrance of the complete dedication of these two fans.


John Alder and Liam Sweeney

And we are also certain that both men will have also sent messages of support to the family of John Alder.

    from last….
    Harps enjoyed his career, no doubt, but he could have been no.1 at many prem clubs at the time. Some would argue he could have been Englands gk had he played regularly. A back up at least, anyway.

    From previous….

    Newcastle have a 25% sell on fee for any deal involving Fraser Forster.

    So if he goes for 9m we will be due to receive over 2m.

    …” but he could have been no.1 at many prem clubs at the time. Some would argue he could have been Englands gk had he played regularly.”

    How many top clubs came in for him then ?
    How many top clubs did he knock back to stay No2 at NUFC for ?
    He was a loyal player yes, but he wasn’t good enough to displace Shay, and would never have been Englands No1.
    Just my opinion of course, but I think he knew he was at the top of his game at NUFC Not everyone has the ability to go all the way to the top. Some people can accept this and be happy with their lot, some can’t.

    Newcastle United are a family.m That was proved when Sir Bobby passed away and also when Gary Speed died. That is something that Ashley will never understand.
